Viewing Beverley through the ages

East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s archives services has launched a new website allowing people to view and buy historic photographs of towns and villages across the East Riding. Beverley, for example, has 29 pages of photographs with views dated back to the 19th century. Bishop Burton, Brandesburton, Cherry Burton, Etton and Walkington, are among other communities featured.

Archivist Sam Bartle said: “The online vintage prints service really helps bring history into the home. Many people feel a strong connection to their local area and its heritage.” The database can be accessed by going picturearchives.org/eastridingphotos
